Small place, was hoping for a "find". The food was just ok. The fries way under cooked and the pulled rib sandwich was tasty but super greasy. Found hunks of bone, which surprised me. Maybe just bad luck. Won't be back.

We usually do carry out. Sometimes I submit on line, other times I just walk in. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Food is always good. The person at the register knows how to use gift cards, and access your bonus points.

City Barbeque is a great chain of restaurants located in Central Ohio. It is a great option to have a great meal quickly. The pulled pork and brisket are my favorites, along with the corn pudding and baked beans.

The idea for City Barbeque was born as an invitation to all the people in the city to enjoy great barbeque- America's food. Our award-winning barbeque is made with only the highest quality meats and served with our signature sauces on the side. Huge smokers are loaded daily to guarantee the very best hickory smoked, juicy, tender meat anywhere. So if an authentic barbeque experience is what you're after, look no further. Small groups of folks like us still believe in honoring quality, generations of tradition and true service. Whether you call it barbecue, Bar-B-Que, BBQ, or barbeque - we've got what you are looking for!
